Situated in the heart of Guernsey, The Old Government House Hotel is the perfect place to set about exploring the Island’s incredible culinary scene. There’s a wealth of great restaurants in Guernsey located right in the centre of St Peter Port. None more so than our very own Brassiere Restaurant that serves favourites like Guernsey Eggs Benedict and fresh-from-the-sea Guernsey fish, and if spice is your thing, The Curry Room delivers an authentic taste of India in the Governor’s Restaurant.
Our sister restaurant at The Duke of Richmond Hotel is another must-visit. The Leopard Bar & Restaurant features a glass wall, allowing diners to watch our busy chefs at work in the kitchen whilst enjoying a succulent rotisserie ½ chicken, their specialty.
Seafood fans will be spoilt for choice at Le Nautique Restaurant (Quay Steps, St Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 2LE). Set within stumbling distance of the sea, the menu here maintains a strong gastronomic edge. Its reputation as the place to go for top quality seafood is well earned with indulgent dishes like Le Nautique Seafood Grillade, a mix of four different types of locally caught fish served with a deliciously light Hollandaise sauce.
Head chef Daniel Green and his team have managed to create a selection of sumptuous dishes that make The Auberge (Jerbourg Road, St Martins, Guernsey, Channel Islands, GY4 6BH) shine as one of the highlights of Guernsey’s culinary scene. A visit to the restaurant will confirm just why this restaurant has been recognised in the prestigious Michelin Guide and awarded the senior and junior ‘Channel Island 2013 Chef of the Year’ titles. Guests can enjoy a mix of classic and contemporary culinary favourites while gazing out across the channel.
If rustic charm is more your thing, then the Petit Bistro (56 Lower Pollet, St Peter Port, GY1 1WF) is the ideal place for you. Chef Mickael Pesrin expertly turns out delectable dishes that show off the revered art of traditional French cooking, with only the best quality ingredients making it onto the plate.
At Pier 17 Restaurant (Albert Pier, St Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 1AD) the focus is very much on great food and good times, the perfect recipe for a memorable Guernsey meal. Set right on the seafront at Albert Pier, diners can bask in the beautiful weather and gorgeous views of Castle Coronet.
If you’re partial to a plate of pasta or antipasto then head to Da Nello (46, Le Pollet, St Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 1WF), one of Guernsey’s finest Italian establishments. Located in a 500 year-old building in the centre of St Peter Port, the modern décor and airy environment created by the restaurant’s glass atrium allows diners to enjoy the al fresco experience without having to step a foot outside.
Red Grill House (61 The Pollet, St Peter Port, GY1 1WL) is a great place to devour a hearty steak and a glass of wine. High quality ingredients, an extensive wine list and a new summer menu mean there’s plenty for you to feast your eyes, and stomachs, on.
